Japan is making bolder in-roads into California with Wapioca, which brings the quirks of Tokyo to San Francisco, one boba at a time. These aren't your corner shop teas either - a wide selection of flavors rotate weekly, as odd as they are delicious, alongside specials that pop up and add a dazzle of extra spice to the mix. Wapioca's still brand new to the scene, but they're already amassing a throng of loyal admirers. Adding yourself to the masses is as easy as tracking down Wapioca and saying hello. What they say back they say big, and they say bold. Oh and you can eat it. A statement you can eat is generally the most convincing kind of statement, you know.

* Tonkotsu Curry Udon - a spicy ramen dish in pork broth, with thick cuts of pork itself buoyed amongst the noodles
